how do you put those liquid force valve retaining collars

How do you put those liquid force valve retaining collars back on. There must be some trick. I know to take it off you just pull the insert and then the collar off the valve, but I can't figure out how to stick that collar back on.

There has to be some secret to it, tried pulling it through with some hemostats all it does it tear the valve.

There has to be a better way to deal with this than just say screw the collar and leave it off which is what I do now.

You're in michigan, your garage is too cold, get em warm then pull through, use pliers if needed.

working in my house it's 69F is that warm enough or do I need to turn the thermostat up to 85? tks

ps who is the genius at liquid force that thought this collar idea up. I have a new bag of 100 cable ties . . . . I think I'm gonna once again skip putting the caps back on and use the ties instead.

10 minutes later . . . .

this is a ridiculous difficult technique, the tape slips off, or if it's strong enough I cant get it off from under the valve, oh boy. Maybe I need better tape.

Going back to the cable ties!

Yeah that looks like a pain in the ass. I've done the max flow a few times and it's not a big deal at all, glad they made the change
